GTA Heists release to a shaky start, new Inside Out and Daredevil trailers, and Zoolander crashes Paris Fashion Week.


Well, this makes me wish I had gone to Paris Fashion Week. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson crashed, for want of a better word, Paris Fashion Week as Derek Zoolander and Hansel McDonald. (you know, from Zoolander) The sequel Zoolander 2 now has an official release date of February 12th 2016, and you can see Hansel’s and Zoolander’s appearance here.

Tron 3 will begin production this autumn, according to ‘insider scoops’. This would point towards a late 2016 release for the film that will, according to Joseph Kosinksi, be darker and more akin to Empire Strikes Back. But the important question remains, will the best character of Legacy return? I’m talking of course, about Daft Punk’s Soundtrack.

Finally, check out the third trailer for Inside Out, it shows us a little bit more of the plot, and it’s looking to be a bit of a buddy adventure between Sadness (Phyllis Smith) and Joy(Amy Poehler), with Anger (Lewis Black), Envy (Mindy Kaling), and Fear (Bill Hader) running the ship while they’re away and getting into, just, all kinds of shenanigans.


Powers, the Playstation Original Series based on the graphic novel series of the same name, has a new full length trailer, and also, if you’re one of our readers based in the US, you can watch the first episode for free right here. Enjoy!

Marvel’s first Netflix show, Daredevil is less than a month away, and here’s another full length trailer, it shows off a bit more of Kingpin, and the parallels between him and Murdock. There’s also a neat shout out to the Avengers, so just because it’s dark and violent doesn’t mean it’s not a part of the MCU.

HBO is joining the realm of internet streaming subscription services with HBO Now. HBO Go is a pre-existing streaming service, but is only available for those with a HBO cable subscription, that will not be the case for HBO Now which will run at a subscription fee of $15 a month. As of yet, there’s no news as to whether the service will be rolling out internationally.


Heists were finally released on GTA Online yeserday! Which means, that, of course, it all went off without a hitch right? Yeah, not so much. Server issues across the board, and limited access meant that it’s off to a rocky start for the most anticipated update in the game’s history.

Sid Meier’s Starships is a bit of a departure from the usual fair of Civilisation, though it does have familiar components (democratic dealings, for example,) but what’s most interesting is that the developers decided to work off of player’s inherent knowledge of space, instead of the cold hard facts. This is an interesting article by Charlie Hall over at Polygon, but one example is the Asteroid fields, and how they behave the way that people expect them to from seeing them in films, shows and other games, pretty clever.

Dying Light has a new update rolling out, the Hard Mode patch. As well as introducing a new, well, hard mode, the update also brings new weapons, new outfits and new behind the scenes improvements, check out this run down video from Techland for the full scoop.
